Always Online Podcast: Rift Is Dead, PlayStation's Answer To Game Pass, And Our Gaming Coverage Favorites Ep 426

Today's show marks Jason Winter's departure as a regular host as he leaves MMOBomb (don't worry, he'll still guest host) so we take the opportunity to lay out our favorite and least favorite companies and moments in our own content creation histories. We'll also pass judgement on Rift, Vanguard, and Amazon Games Studio and review Sony's answer to Game Pass! All that and more on this week's Always Online!
